Wedding Photographers in Cleveland, Ohio at Orchard Hills Center at Patterson’s Fruit Farm for an outdoor wedding in Chesterland, Ohio
Nicole and Patrick had a superb wedding at the Orchard Hills Center at Patterson’s Fruit Farm in Chesterland, Ohio. They were ready to rock out the day with their friends and family. Nicole and Patrick couldn’t have picked a better Ohio day to unite their lives to each other, overlooking Lake Erie in the background.
Nicole and Patrick met while working at a popular Willoughby restaurant, and became close friends almost immediately. With their shared love of food, and passion for music, the two often indulged in spirited conversations with one another -- until their platonic relationship transformed into a romantic one.
After months of hesitation, Patrick mustered the courage to ask Nicole on a date, and she happily obliged. The two took a day trip to Geneva-on-the-Lake, where they savored each other's company on a quiet beach, and while touring the area's wineries. The two shared their first kiss as the sun set behind the sprawling South River Winery vineyard and, in that moment, knew that neither would have to go on a first date again.
Patrick and Nicole's intense love for one another has grown every day since. In 2017 they adopted their dog, Bodhi whose charisma and energy fit perfectly into their lives.
On September 15, 2018, while on a scenic walk on their favorite trail, Patrick bent the knee to ask for Nicole's hand in marriage. Through her tears of joy, Nicole warmly muttered "yes" to Patrick's relief.
Nicole and her girls had a blast getting ready with each other. When the time was right, Nicole and Patrick exchanged letters, being able to hold hands, but not see each other until the ceremony.
Their ceremony was simple and sweet, perfectly fitting their laid-back personalities.
Following the ceremony, Nicole and Patrick took advantage of Patterson’s Fruit Farm’s gorgeous grounds for pictures.
The reception was rocking, with lots of music, laughter, and general good fun as friends and family celebrated Nicole and Patrick’s marriage!
Nicole and Patrick - congratulations in your wedding together!
